@Kevinward777 is in front of me.....however, being a follower of Christ (as best I can...I fail a lot) I don't need to plump myself up with titles such as "leadership team member". Neither would any other true believer. We don't need to bolster our ego, blow our own horns (like Onan...LOL!!. See....I just fell again, dammit!....I'm up now) or think of ourselves as wiser or better in any way than the next bloke.Our new Silvertails religious leadership team - Moz and Bozo. I'm starting to think the Barrett years may have caused more harm than I'd imagined.
I wonder how the NRL/rugby union would go if all the christian players decided they weren't welcome and left? Imagine playing in a comp where you're told to just play the game and keep your mouth shut. Even though Jesus instructed followers to spread the word far and wide.Are you suggesting one of them should extent Folau an invitation to address the Silvertails faithful ??
At the risk of getting a little technical, he kind of was an imitator. There is this little known deity that goes by the name of Buddha, who preceded your idol by some 6 centuries, and still pulls a crowd of 300 million fans. He is also celebrated around the world, not so much by the presentation of lavish gifts and consumption of chocolate eggs, but by colourful festivities nonetheless. But yeah, yours is the real one.3000 imitators ?
The original and the bench mark is celebrated around the world during Christmas and Easter .
No Technicalities and no comparison here what so ever feathered friend . Budda never claimed that he was the messiah .At the risk of getting a little technical, he kind of was an imitator.

What a truly inspirational post!You're talking religion. I'm talking Christ. Show me one piece of solid evidence that Jesus ever said to kill another human. This is what I mean when I talk about people and their false understanding of the fundamental difference between religion and Jesus. People think they are clever.....but they fail to see the truth with statements like the one above.
Lets put Muhammad in the ring with Jesus. Muhammad's message started with, "love everyone". Then turned to, "defend yourselves with swords". Finally it was, "kill the infedals".
When Jesus came to break the old law and show the new way.....even in a time of male domination and segregation of the sick....he taught, "love everybody". He went out of his way to reach the minorities and outcasted and accepted the gentiles. He did what the Jewish churches would never do....and all the while he taught, "love everybody, don't retaliate, forgiveness rules". Even while being nailed up, he asked the Father to forgive his persecutors. I could never do that.
Here's some homework if you're truly interested (or maybe you just like to throw in the odd joke here and there) Study the way Jesus lived, what he consistantly taught, the way he died and the evidence of his resurrection. Marry that up against any other "religious" leader you like. He comes out on top.
Some people think he was a good and wise teacher....ahead of his time. Well.....Jesus doesn't give you that option. He said he was God in human form. So, we have to ask ourselves....was he insane and truly mistaken about his identity? (to the point of execution), was he a con man that willingly pulled the wool over everyones eyes? (to the point of execution) or was he the messiah?
I loved to heap crap on christians in the past. Sky pilots, Father Trickemups, gospel floggers etc etc. Then one day I thought....I sound like I know what I'm talking about when being disrespectful to theses people...but do I?? If I don't know the facts of what I'm arguing against....then I'm the dickhead! lol.
I grew up out west in a rough and ready family. Plenty of DV and vilolence in general and didn't even know that was wrong to tell you the truth. It was just everyday living and all my mates were in the same boat. I was uneducated basically because life was about having fun and doing what ever you like, when ever you like. Drink, smoke, sex up, fight at the drop of a hat, steal, lie. It was all up for grabs and I loved it. I truly loved it! Drug deals...especially when things went wrong were the height of good fun. My brother broke a blokes hip once with a golf club in a scallywag scuffle over what we considered to be a fair price. It was all fun and games.
He's still the same. I grew up and parted ways with him and my old mates.
Jesus wasn't part of our lives growing up. And he certainly didn't save me. I had a family while young, took the responsibility seriously, worked hard, bought a house and eventually opened my own businesses. Dad used to tell my old mates I was a self made man...because I had to do it without any help from family of friends. That's why I always advise people to stop whingeing, get off your arse and have a go. If I managed it...anyone can! I still don't go to church. It was probably only about 4/5 months ago that I had an hour or so to kill and this very forum was pretty slow that I thought I probably should do a bit of research. You'll be surprised what you'll discover if you can truly investigate with no preconceived notions.
Once again....dig through historical evidence, archaelogical evidence, read the eye witness accounts in context and ask why would the jews and romans of the time act as they did. DON'T study christianity but weigh up what Jesus taught against every other religion. Investigate the leader of those religions. Many people on here are on the right track by damning "religion"....but don't make the mistake of accusing Jesus of mans agendas, mistakes and atrocities.
Anyway....some of you probably won't talk to me anymore because of my honesty. That's ok. I understand that. I was like that too a while ago......
About 5 minutes ago you posted in another thread that it was fine to punch someone preemptively to defend yourself.How many wars did Christ fight ?
Answer . Only one
The one for peace for all mankind and that was fought with no harmful weapons but with humility and compassion every one
Hipocrites that defy their faith start wars for their own interest .
No hipocrisy what so ever . This is self defence . When you have an aggressor coming at you that you cannot reason with . You have 2 optionsAbout 5 minutes ago you posted in another thread that it was fine to punch someone preemptively to defend yourself.
Yet you advocate peace for all and use only humility and compassion to fight 'wars'!
Not really intending to have a go at your for hypocrisy but just think you ought to explain better where you stand on this. Is it OK for people - and peoples - to defend themselves against aggression. Against oppression and cruelty? Or should we all suck it up and accept every injustice and every bullying, invading, exploiting force that strives to subjugate us?
So forget peace, forget turning the other cheek, forget relying only on humility and compassion, forget relying on the greatness of 'God' to save us.No hipocrisy what so ever . This is self defence . When you have an aggressor coming at you that you cannot reason with . You have 2 options
Option 1 to get beaten to a pulp
Option 2 defend your self and stop the bullsht
So doomed.....that’s not the start of it!! I’ve got 10 consecutive eternal sentences in hell hanging over my head!!!!Okay .... we have all seen the list of sinners going to hell ... according to the Gospel and expressed by Folau .... not happy reading because I am certain many of my favourite Silvertails are so doomed .. so so doomed ...
This is a very good and honest question here and this is a theologians answerSo forget peace, forget turning the other cheek, forget relying only on humility and compassion, forget relying on the greatness of 'God' to save us.
Which I agree with, but surely you realise you just totally contradicted yourself.
I’d like to table the following:Okay .... we have all seen the list of sinners going to hell ... according to the Gospel and expressed by Folau .... not happy reading because I am certain many of my favourite Silvertails are so doomed .. so so doomed ...
But is that list conclusive ..... I believe we need our own approved Silvertails list of Hellbound sinners ...... I'll start ....
